New Historical Photo Exhibit at the Richmond Library

A new photo exhibit featuring 8 historical photos of Richmond has opened at the Richmond Public Library.  Produced by the Goulbourn Historical Society, it is one of the ways the Society is helping to celebrate Richmond’s 200th anniversary.  The photo exhibit will hang on the Library’s Artspace wall until the end of June.  There are two laminated information sheets on the filing cabinet underneath the exhibit that tell something of interest about each of the photos.  There is also a display of historical items on open shelves nearby.  The photos come from the Historical Society’s Archives, and the public is most welcome to come and have a look at the exhibit.

200th Anniversary Recognition Platform Repaired

Recent strong winds created a major calamity for the Richmond 200 Organizing Committee but thankfully the call for help was answered by two local volunteers…..pictured below Richard Waterfall (L) and Rick Lefebvre.

They came with their tools and general know how to help Tino Bevacqua resurrect the damaged platform. Three hours later the platform was returned to most of its previous glory except for a few nicks and bruises!

The Organizing Committee thanks the two Rick’s for stepping up and demonstrating how great our Richmond neighbours truly are.
